Geneva Airport to Chamonix

We are flying with Air France from Singapore to Paris CDG, then transit to Geneva Airport. For the Paris CDG - Geneva Airport flight, I guess we can consider that as a domestic flight.

At Geneva Airport, can I assume that we will end up in the French Sector?

We will be going on to Chamonix from the airport. I found this company called Chamonix Express, which charges 25 Euros per person, for transfer from Geneva Airport to Chamonix:

http://www.chamexpress.com/company.html

Is it ok to go with this company?

I am asking because there is a French Sector and a Swiss Sector in the airport, and I do not know which sector a company picks up passengers.

Can we go from one sector to another easily?

I used chamexpress last week. Very easy and quick.

When you exit the departure lounge you will see the airport information desk, there will be 20 or so reps holding boards with theoir company names on them. Look for the guys wearing orange jumpers (chamexpress), cost 25euro each way, you must book in advance.

Hi,

Thanks for the information. I was actually worried that my checked in luggage would end up in the French Sector.

Your bags most likely will end up on the French side.

You need to check with your airline.

But the Chamexpress leaves from the Swiss side of the airport.

If you do arrive at the domestic side and pick your bags up there there is a passport control post just off the baggage belt room.

Go through there down the stairs and then go through the Swiss passport control and out through the international baggage hall into the Swiss arrivals side.

Awful Alpybus- Rude unsafe drivers and a company that doesnot stick to the price it quotes. I travelled with my family from Geneva airport to a resort near Chamonix in March 2008. The bus driver was late, appallingly rude and demanded a price in excess of what Alpybus had agreed in writing with me. He drove without care whilst speaking at length on his mobile phone - very unsafe. I feared for the safety of my family. On complaining the company didnot deal with it in a satisfactory manner. I would never recommend this means of transport. Don't travel this way.

They will be closed for the rest of the winter season before my trip. So I had to look for another company, Cham Van, which costs 40 Euros per person.
